I spent this past weekend in Mexico for Quinn's 24th birthday. I've never been to Mexico before (like at all) and this was a great first experience. It was amazing that I could be in an entirely different country just an hour away from San Diego!
How I got there:
1. Took an Uber to the 12th and Imperial stop downtown.
2. Rode the trolley towards San Ysidro.
3. Walked across the border.
4. Took a taxi to Rosarito. ($27 U.S dollars)
It was that simple! Also, right as you get off the trolley there a number of places where you can exchange U.S dollars for pesos.
Here is a picture below of the customs on the Mexico border.
Our first meal of Mexico! We went to this super cute garden-patio-type place called Las Gorditas de Rosarito. We ordered gorditas, which neither of us have ever tried before. They're basically tortillas stuffed with various meats. We ordered pollo de mole, bistek ranchero, and deshebrada gorditas. Yum!
We decided to celebrate Quinn's birthday on Sunday night (his birthday was on Monday), at a restaurant El Nido, which we heard (and I read) great reviews about! They are known for their broiled meats. Super tender and yummy!
